The community forums are a place where people can interact and have discussions about several different topics. However, we ask that you follow these guidelines to ensure that the forums have some productive conversation. Failure to comply with these rules may result in a ban from the forums or the entire site, as well as removal of posts and points!

- No flaming, badgering, spamming, or trolling.
- No discussion of piracy or illegal material, or linking to these illegal activities.
- Do not post material that is hateful or mean towards race, religion, sex, or any other offensive nature.
- Do not post for the sake of forum post count... your posts will be removed if we see you posting multiple 5-7 word posts just for points.
- Do not complain about getting banned, and do not make another account to circumvent a ban.
- Do not post links to lewd or offensive content. Keep everything Safe for Work.
- Do not post any personal information about you or anyone else. We don't want to know your street address.
- Do not post advertising or referral links.
- No excessive swearing or language.
- Turn off your caps lock, do not use excessive ALL CAPS in your posts.
- Do not copy or plagiarize comments.

Borrowed from the Rules and Guidelines page.

So what does no excessive swearing mean? What is the limit of swearing you can use?

I wonder if anyone would do something of these, but they are good rules.


If you go to Kongregate, you will get an idea of the mayhem if Armorgames didn't have a moderation team. Kongregate has one, but thy aren't very good. I once tried talking to ten of them on a chat about a group of flamers but they ignored me. Ever sine then I stopped being on the forum and chat on Kongregate. Now I only play games there.

I think you people are trying to look t this the diplomatic way. Where are the flaws so I an do bad things... Not like that please. Trust your instinct on what you think it right or wrong. The maximum amount of swearing is zero, most likely. I recommend not even thinking about breaking rules or trying to get around them.

Excessive cursing would be to the effect that you're swearing more than twice in a sentence without bleeping them out. But there should be no need to curse, as there are female users that are on here, and it's not gentleman like to curse where females may see it.

Lol.
Excessive cursing is anything beyond the occasional "darn".

At least, if you use that as the guideline, you won't get banned. Basically, try not swear at all.
